Discl- You get the idea.


"You sure he'll be okay with it?" Kiyoko asked as they waited at the parking lot.

"Trust me," Daichi said. "Dad is without a doubt the friendliest guy you'll ever meet. And Mom… well, I don't know how your mom was, but mine's as good a mother as the next woman."

"Here he comes," Isamu said, grabbing the attention of the other two. The morning after they got back from the Digital World, Daichi e-mailed his father saying that their task had been completed earlier than expected and to pick them up at the end of the week as planned and to expect a visitor.

The blue car stopped in front of them the front passenger side window rolled down. "Hey, Daichi," the man inside said. "How was camp?"

"Eventful, to say the least," Daichi responded as he placed his duffle with Isamu's above the car.

"And this must be your new lady friend," Daichi's dad said, having taken note of Kiyoko's presence.

"My name's Kiyoko," she said as she bowed. "It's a pleasure to meet you, Mr. Sato."

"Pleasure's all mine," he replied. "Personally, I think it's about time Daichi got a girlfriend."

"Dad!" Daichi yelled. Kiyoko just giggled.

"Anyway," Daichi's dad said to Kiyoko, "are your parents busy with something? I know that's Isamu's story, but I'm just asking."

"It's a long story," Kiyoko said.

"Well, pile in everyone," Mr. Sato said. Daichi took the front seat while Isamu and Kiyoko got in the back. The car started and moved toward the exit of the parking lot.

"So, Daichi," Mr. Sato began, "something I've wanted to know. What exactly was that 'thing' you thought you were going to spend days doing?"

Daichi looked back at the others, who both nodded. It had been decided the night before what they would tell Daichi's father. "I told it like it is, Dad," Daichi answered. "That card game I play, Digimon, is a real thing, and Isamu, Kiyoko, and I all went to the Digital World to stop a great evil."

Mr. Sato laughed. "And here Mom says you'll never be a novelist like your old man. You could literally sell millions with that."

Daichi smiled smugly. "Okay, I was hoping to do this the easy way, but…" He took his backpack, which he had set on the floor in front of him, and unzipped it. "You might want to pull over," he said. Mr. Sato just smirked as if deciding to humor Daichi's request. As soon as he pulled up to the side of the road, Daichi pulled out Babydramon. "Dad, meet Babydramon, my partner Digimon." just stared in amazement, not daring to make a sound. "Don't worry, he's perfectly safe," Daichi said.

"Nice to meet you, Mr. Daichi's dad," Babydramon said, startling Mr. Sato a little more.

"And these two…?" he said, daring to look back. Isamu had already opened his backpack, releasing Minomon and Salamon to their respective partners.

Mr. Sato turned back to Daichi. "Eventful, you say, huh? Well, good thing this is a three hour road trip. I'm way too curious to leave this alone."

"Don't worry, Mr. Sato," Isamu said. "You'll have all the details you'll need… and then some." Mr. Sato just set the car to "drive" and continued down the road, waiting to hear this interesting story.

And thus endeth my tale of Digimon: Battle! Hope you enjoyed.

Right now, I think I'll go back to some other projects that really need my attention *cough*ActionAnimeBrawl*cough*

This is CF, most definitely, signing out.
